About Donna

As a caregiver I am compassionate and caring. I decided to become a caregiver after helping care for my grandfather during his end of life. Through my 15+years of being a caregiver I understand what is means for the clients to have the care they deserve, while maintaining their dignity. I pride myself on being a team player and can adapt easily to changes. Attention to detail is important to me as well. What has made me the proudest, is the relationships I have established with my clients and their families.

Thank you so much for all the hard work this week. I know things will fall into place real soon and things will be routine around here for you. Herb has some new meds he started tonight that should help to calm him and I know that will help us all.

I love being a caregiver/CNA. I've been a CNA for over 25 years. It gives me alot of pleasure taking care of the elderly. I'm a very caring & compassionate person. The reason why I started becoming a caregiver was because my brother just got diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. I used to take care of him before he went into the nursing home. I'm very hard working & enjoy listening to my clients history, for example where they are from & what they used to do for a living. I would treat your loved one like I would my own with up most respect. I really enjoy getting to know my clients & I feel like they are part of my family. If I can make them smile & laugh then I know I'm doing my job because some of my clients don't have much family or friends & they get very lonely & depressed. My personal achievement is taking care of sick & elderly patients.
